The Hippopod is one of a race with origins in Greek and Roman mythology, legend and folklore. Specifically, accounts of their existence first arose in Natural History (a work written by Pliny the Elder).
The Hippopodes resemble humans except they have horses' hooves in lieu of feet. In fact, they resemble the breed of Satyr known as an Ipotane, but are distinguished in that female Hippopodes exist, while female Ipotanes (let alone any other breed of female Satyr) do not.
